Transforming social services

We place a high priority on being accountable and providing independently measured impact. Since 2008
we have spent over €2m on research and evaluation. Findings to date indicate that personalised
supports achieve better outcomes for people than standardised, one-size-fits-all services
and can be an option for everyone regardless of factors such as age or ability.
